Where is a good source for servo extensions for these and the HK 2g 4 Channel DSM2 RX? All these different micro connectors has me scratching my head.

HK part numbers would be great long term but If you know of a US source that would be great as I wouldn't mind paying a bit extra for speedy shipment.

Thanks

AFAIK HK don't have this extension, only the 2 pin one for batteries.

If Glenn at RC-Connectors doesn't have it it probably isn't available!

Great business to deal with and he is a forum regular.

Have a look in his store.

Dropping micro parts on the floor

1. Turn off all the lights in the shop.
2. Secure a flashlight that projects somewhat of a 'beam.'
3. Get down on the floor on your belly.
4. Slowly scan the floor in a rough 180-degree pattern.
5. It'll surprise you all the flotsam and jetsam that's down there.
6. But sooner or later you'll find the bugger, especially if it's bright metal, or all-white plastic.

This protocol has saved me from ending up a lost alcoholic any number of times in the past 50 years.

Good luck!

Bill, that's my technique as well....

However when there is as much cr_p on your floor as there is on mine AND the servo was smoked and cost $3.57 originally there comes a time where time is money.

jj604 if the Futaba micro connector is a molex (1.25mm) Connector, i think i have found a servo extension micro plug and a micro Y-harness connector .

The plug looks the same to me and it says (Futaba micro connector)

What do you think Guys ?

Those should work. Just verify the servo polarity to the RX. The servo manufactures don't seem to follow the same polarity layout. I had to pull the pins on my servo's from their connectors to match the polarity of my HK RX. The Futaba connectors are the standard mini servo connector. Spektrum has non standard connectors. The DSM2 HK micro RX uses these Futaba connectors.

I bought my extensions from Glenn and just finished building the Eflite Cessna 150 with the HK RX and HK servo's.

These are for the new planes Hobbyking are bringing out. These are like spare parts for them. They will work with the rotary servos.

boredom, do you mean you have found them at HK as well? I couldn't see them anywhere. The ones richos found are genuine Futaba at genuine Futaba prices I think.

I assumed, my bad. HK announced that they will have them within the next couple of days.

Here's another piece of good news. Particularly if you use the Spektrum AR6300 Rx or others with the same connector.

I sent HK a message about the connectors and got a reply.

Anthony, I think it would be really smart to supply your excellent 1.7g and 2.2g servos with both the Molex 1.25mm connectors (current version) AND 1.5mm JST-ZH connectors (AR6300)

Reply The product team are looking into this now.

Not quite extensions, but the male and female connectors with leads:

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=19566

2 warnings:
*Male and female seem to be used in an sense opposite used by many: male metal plug = female plastic housing and vice-versa
*Both seem to be in back order.

BPHobbies has some micro-futaba extensions (I think this is what is wanted, check wire polarity!):
